I was walking near Liverpool Street yesterday when I had a leaflet entitled "Chav Fighting" thrust into my hand. For a few moments I thought I'd bumped into a new promotion for the Huntsmans and had visions of a return to pre-Victorian London entertainment but it turned out to be promoting a fitness club's class, which describes itself as:
"CHAV FIGHTING Protect yourself form the ‘YOUF’ of today. Learn how to defend yourself from gangs of HOODIES, avoid HAPPY SLAPPINGS and feel safe in KNIFE CRIME-ridden London. Using a mixture of self defence techniques (see Krav Maga) and other martial arts, our very own Chav Maga will keep you confident, switched on and ready for action! "
Not at all inflammatory... All this from Gymbox which also advertises classes such as "Fight Klub" (sic), "Pole Dancing", Celebrity Body, Bitch Boxing and Boob Aerobics...
How long before somebody reports them??
